    ..can't believe how much more fun the Thruxton is than the sprint Rs... I end up grinning everytime I go out on it just from the enjoyment of riding it.

    I know the feeling, I picked up an Old Stock Thruxton R 2 weeks ago and first day out on her I was with a group of guys on mobile couches( harley baggers) so didnt really get to feel the bike. WELL, tonight I took the girl out had had a fantastic solo ride. Ive been riding for nearly 50 years all sorts of bikes and dozens of them. My most impressive handling bike to date was a 2014 Tuono V4, and it was brilliant. Tonight the Thruxton showed just how well Triumph designed this bike, the handling on our rough country roads was sensational, nothing I threw at it unsettled it in any way, change lines mid corner, no worries, bumps mid corner, what bump. I came home feeling so stoked with the Thruxton. Sure it could do with a bit more poke and I'll sort that, but the handling and the confidence in the bike has really justified the purchase. Top bike.

    I’m really impressed with mine, as above I’ve had far more powerful & sophisticated bikes but the Thruxton 1200 really is an enjoyable bike to ride, I think it’s a mix of how pleasing it is to the eye, the steady handling and the exhaust note, maybe also the fact that the power is more than adequate but not overwhelming? (my 1200 Ducati was a great bike but just too fast for the road IMO), anyway whatever it is it’s my favourite bike amongst the 40+ bikes I’ve owned.
